Big Cat Updates
After 20 years of incredible service Barbara Stairs, despite being so young, has decided to finally retire. I see grandchildren getting lots of attention in the future!
Gale, who prior to coming to BCR worked in the accounting field, has agreed to initially take over Barbara’s duties and then, once settled into that, take over the Chief Financial Officer portion of my duties and become our official CFO. This will free me up to spend more time on our advocacy work, particularly the federal bill, and most likely result in much better financial statements. 🙂
Kathryn has agreed to replace Gale as Operations Manager, a transition we expect to be quick and easy given Kathryn’s long history here and wealth of knowledge.
Last but by no means least, volunteer Barbara Nicholas will become staff and take over the position of Director of Donor Appreciation. Barbara is traveling but will return Aug 10 to begin her new duties.
Please make a point when you see them to congratulate Barbara Stairs on her well deserved retirement and Gale, Kathryn and Barbara Nicholas on their new responsibilities. – Howard Baskin
